Ok, thanks. I will order. I already ordered the igniter module also. I have replaced all these components before but have never come across this problem. I will install the transformer first with the downstream harnesses disconnected. I just wish I had answers to the couple inquiries I had posted earlier. Thanks again for the reply.

i really took a close look at the schematic. somebody correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems to show a direct 240 volt input to the ignitor module and the switching at the valves is actually connecting the common. my instincts tell me the module is bad because of the water spillage directly on the burner while it was sparking, but i was confused because i dont know how you can feed 240 volts also sharing a ground wire. if this is true and the module is directly fed with voltage then i'm thinking that there is a good chance this is where the grounding out is occurring and frying the transformer.

I didn't check the windings on the transformer. I just assumed it had gone bad since I had no 12 volts or 240 volts leaving it. it wasn't unti afterl I changed it that I found out that water had been spilled on a burner. I think there is something definitely wrong downstream. from looking at the schematic and the wiring I would just be confused if it could be the igniter module when there were no knobs turned calling for spark.the other thing that confuses me a little is that the red and white leaving the transformer is 12 volts and the red and brown is 240 volts. I don't understand how the receiving harness brown wire goes straight to ground. How do I check the switch harness for grounding? I reassembled stove top so it can be used lighting manually and it is not really easy to go get access to it again. I have the schematic with me and also the igniter module.

It is a Tecumseh compressor. I wasn't going to keep spending 30 bucks on oem parts every 3 months so this was a last $ 8.00 resort. If this hard start fails then the fridge is getting junked. New compressor is out of the question. I installed the urco410 for this compressor which I was told is 1/3 hp. Still running great. On borrowed time I'm sure.

The compressor tarted to quit every couple days and the overload would click. I would unplug it for an hour or two and it would work for up to a couple days before failing again. Finally installed the 3 n 1 hard start a week ago and it's been good. Thanks for the feedback.
